    Bug report:
    System + tools info
    - Houdini version: 19.5.303
    - Unity version: 2019.4.28f1 & 2020.3.38f1
    - OS: Win 10

    - An error message while dragging and dropping almost all HDAs into a blank unity scene:" There are undefined nodes. This is due to not being able to find specific asset definitions. You might need to load other (dependent) HDAs first."

    - More details:
    1. Shader lost for almost all geometries in the sample scene then needs to be relinked with Houdini's own shader manually;
    2. Excluding the HDA for edge damage and rock, other HDAs have a few materials lost. Not sure whether it's caused by the location of the Material(s) folder (by default it's set as Assets/Material but all materials are actually stored in Assets/Houdini_Kit/Materials)
    3. Tree trunk and foliage/leaves failed to assign gradient tint to their leaves chunks/leaves. But the branches' part looks fine;
    4. Same as the error reported by the message above from Thomas Foliasgr, road tool 2D generates lots of "frames" based on unity meshes and inputs instead of plane geometries;

    Does anyone have any idea about these?

    Thanks in advance!
